Granville slowdown

Hi, just wondering if anyone knows why all trains now run at a snails pace between clyde and granville, this seems to be permanent due to it being allowed for in tommorrows timetable changes, by an extra minute being added.

Thanks

I would be guessing that the extra minute would be for dwell time at Granville, and would not affect train speed at all.

There was a similar slowdown on the mains near Ashfield that lasted for many months - was due to alignment issues at the crossover.

Yeah there is no dwell time and the speed has been affected, the trains seem to only do about 25-30km/h between the two stations into platform 4 at Granville, whether they made a stop at Clyde or not.

Either step onto the platform at Clyde and look toward Granville  or look out the left side of the train as it departs Clyde and about 70-80 metres from Clyde, you will see a Yellow Caution board with the number 20 on it...  Hmmm a 20km/h caution.... perhaps that may explain it...

The sun turning into a red giant if we factor in a delay.

Indeed, there are speed restrictions all over the network for a variety of reasons. Thanks to the extra padding in the timetable though, it generally isn't an issue as far as on-time running is concerned. One that always annoyed me was the one at St Peters on the down and up Illawarra, they took it away for a few weeks and then it was back againLeaving Sydenham doing the board, come around the corner and find a 20 caution! (it seems to have disappeared for a while, I'm always a little suspicious going through there though  Laughing) In any event, they certainly aren't rare occurrences and are usually fixed pretty quickly, in the meantime I'm sure everyone can foot a delay of a few seconds.

I got so use to the 20 at Penshurst I still have to remind myself not to do it.

Most cautions don't usually cause delays, but the one on the up suburban between Strathfield and Burwood has been delaying the Western line trains by about a minute, which does make a difference. There is also one at Homebush as well on the up.
